    Do you think i’d like the game as a hardcore rimworld fan? I like how accessible RW is, yet very unforgiving, i like the amount of freedom i have and how important pawns are, how i can be on the brink of a game over for HOURS but still bounce back. Is this anything like that?

    I dont know anyones who has played it and money’s tight so asking for random’s opinion

      Yes, this game is like that. This game also has more in depth simulation and mechanics, but it’s way less accessible.

      One major difference is that RimWorld has a narrator AI that will make up events for your colony to experience, while dwarf fortress tries to simulate a world and the events are most of the time the result of the world simulation.

      This makes RimWorld more gamey, meaning dwarf fortress can kind of get stuck in weird or bad situations, and men in black won’t magically show up to save your colony. But for many players that’s part of the charm!

        MiB never helped anyways, if he appeared the situation was bad enough to guarantee a New Game.

        I found some vids and learned theres a FREE ver, so im def checking when i get back from work.

        Saw some vids about the game during break, its quite different imo - losing pawns doesnt seem as painful as it is in rimworld and dont really like the “classic” fantasy style it has but again, i can check it for free.

        One question tho, could you give an example of a ‘weird/bad situation’?
